Transcript of Edgar Allan Poe: The Raven

Who is Edgar Allan Poe? Open up your text books to page 360. The Raven Edgar Allan Poe Tone vs. Mood The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe 1.) Tone: the author's voice. It is the way a writer feels about a place or a character. Tone is revealed through word choice.
2.) Mood: the effect on the audience. The feelings and thoughts of the audience. Take a close look at word choice.
-What is the tone (author's voice)? Give support.
-What is the mood (audience's thoughts and feelings)? Give support.
-How did this trailer create that certain mood? What did this trailer use to create that certain mood? Take a close look at word choice.

-How is this trailer different from the first one? How did this trailer create that certain mood? What did this trailer use to create that certain mood? Summary: The Raven It's late at night, and late in the year (after midnight on a December evening, to be precise). A man is sitting in his room, half reading, half falling asleep, and trying to forget his lost love, Lenore. Suddenly, he hears someone (or something) knocking at the door. http://www.teachertube.com/viewVideo.php?video_id=251203 He calls out, apologizing to the "visitor" he imagines must be outside. Then he opens the door and finds nothing. This freaks him out a little, and he reassures himself that it is just the wind against the window. So he goes and opens the window, and in flies (you guessed it) a raven. The Raven settles in on a statue above the door, and for some reason, our speaker's first instinct is to talk to it. He asks for its name, just like you usually do with strange birds that fly into your house, right? Amazingly enough, though, the Raven answers back, with a single word: "Nevermore." Understandably surprised, the man asks more questions. The bird's vocabulary turns out to be pretty limited, though; all it says is "Nevermore." Our narrator catches on to this rather slowly and asks more and more questions, which gets more painful and personal. The Raven, though, doesn't change his story, and the poor speaker starts to lose his sanity. Refrains "Like poets, good speakers appeal to our sense of hearing. One way they do this is by using refrains, which create echoes in listeners' ears. A refrain is a repeated sound, word, phrase, line, or group of lines. Refrains are used to build rhythm and emphasize important themes or messages" (pg. 329). -Almost every song has a refrain because the structure is typically verse-chorus-verse. Mother's Day Verse:
You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I'll always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah
There isn't anything
Or anyone that I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side
You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there
To comfort me
And no one else can be
What you have been to me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl
In my life for all times "A Song For Mama" by Boys II Men Chorus:
Mama
Mama you know I love you
(Oh you know I love you)
Mama
Mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul Verse:
(yes it is, yes it is,ohhhhh,yes it is,yes it is,yes it is... oohhhh)
You're always there for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
(Yes you did)
And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on
There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And saaaayyyyy,
I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be
The girl in my life
(oooo, oohh) Chorus Verse:
Never gonna go a day without you
Fills me up just thinking about you
I'll never go a day
Without my mama Look at your Raven poem, does Edgar Allan Poe use refrains? Give me a couple of examples. *Remember it can be a repeated sound, word, phrase, line, or a group of lines. Hmmm.. then how is refrain different from alliteration? Essential question: How does language affect the audience? Alliteration Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds in several words that are close together. Alliteration create music with words.

Do you hear the rustling of that curtain in all those sounds?
*Remember*
A refrain in a repeated sound, word, phrase, line, or group of lines. Refrains are used to build rhythm and emphasize important themes or messages Sufferin'
succotash! Can you find alliteration
in the Raven? Give me a couple examples. "And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain." Rhythm and Rhyme What 2 things make certain poetry sound like music? 1.) Rhythm: the repetition of stressed and unstressed syllables. This provides the poem's beat (pg. 402).
2.) Rhyme: a repetition of similar sounds in two or more words, most often at the end of lines in poems. Two words that sound alike. adds to the music of a poem, like the tinkling of a bell or the class of cymbals (pg. 402-403). Personification What is personification?
Personification is a figure of speech in which an inanimate object is given human or lifelike qualities. Within your group, find three examples of personification in The Raven.
Hint: Stanza 3, 7, and 8. Stanza 3, line 1: “..sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain…” *The rustling of the curtains sounds sad as if the curtains themselves share the misery of the narrator.

Stanza 7, line 3: "Not the least obeisance made he." *Obeisance is a curtsy or a movement of the body expressing deep respect, which only a human would know how to do.

Stanza 8, line 2: "By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore..." *Countenance is the expression of the face. Answers: How does the language (personification) affect the audience? Definitions 1.) Tone: The author's voice. It is the way a writer feels about a place or character.
2.) Mood: The effect on the audience. The feelings and thoughts of the audience.
3.) Rhythm: the repetition of stressed and unstressed syllables. This provides the poem's beat.
4.) Rhyme: A repetition of similar sounds in two or more words, more often at then end of lines in poems. Two words that sound alike. Definitions 5.) Refrains: A repeated sound, word, phrase, line, or group of lines. It is used to build rhythm and emphasize important themes or messages.
6.) Alliteration: It is the repetition of consonant sounds in several words that are close together. Alliteration creates music with words.
7.) Personification: It is a figure of speech in which an inanimate object is given human or lifelike qualities.
